The University Hospitals Bristol (UHBristol) NHS Foundation Trust is looking to appoint a Consultant Clinical Oncologist with an interest in Upper Gastrointestinal and Urological Cancer. This is a substantive full time post (10PAs) based at the UHBristol NHS Trust with some sessions at Weston Area Health NHS Trust (WAHT).

UH Bristol is one of the largest acute Trusts in the country and a major teaching and research centre for the South West. At the Bristol Haematology and Oncology Centre (BHOC), the Oncology service provides for a catchment population of 2.2 million people. The centre receives about 5,500 new referrals each year. There is a strong emphasis on research with the BHOC clinical trials unit actively recruiting in over 100 oncology and haematology trials. There are close links with the University of Bristol and the University of the West of England.

We aim to provide healthcare, research and teaching of the very highest quality and are recognised as one of the highest-performing acute trusts in the country. UH Bristol was rated Outstanding by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) following an inspection in November 2016. The successful candidate will join a team of 16 clinical and 5 medical oncologists (approximately 20 whole time equivalents).

The centre provides radiotherapy (adult and children), brachytherapy and chemotherapy (adult) services to all the Bristol hospitals. Chemotherapy services are also provided in Weston General Hospital. This structure allows the BHOC to further develop the infrastructure for specialist service support and provision. The BHOC is also the home of the Teenage and Young Adults Unit, the Avon Haematology Unit (AHU) providing a full range of treatments (including autologous and allogenic Bone Marrow Transplant Services), the University of Bristol Palliative Medicine group and a large Clinical Trials Unit.

The successful candidate must be registered with the GMC with a valid licence to practise in line with the introduction of revalidation on 16 November 2009. You will also have completed Specialist Training (or equivalent) and be entered on the Specialist Register of the GMC, or have a CCT date in Clinical Oncology within six months of the date of interview.

Bristol has an exciting and diverse culture with excellent schools. It was voted by the Sunday Times in 2017 as the best city in Britain to live in. There is quick access to the South West of England, Wales and London. Applicants wishing to work as part of a job share or part time are encouraged to apply. The closing date for applications is 21 March 2018 with interviews scheduled for 12 April 2018.
